TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Plaza Hotel Kamloops
Good value considering what we have paid elsewhere. Rooms have been refurbished and contain all you need albeit they are not large rooms. Little noisy outside (Saturday night) and constant noise from hall air conditioner. Brekkie and Wi-Fi included along with free phone calls (including international). Restaurant was good with live music. Parking in public park next door and access a little tricky (albeit helped by staff). All in all OK

Kamloops is a medium sized town about 90,000 and is quite green considering the low rainfall in the area. Donkey had to get his photo taken with his friends in the park. We have another early start and a longer journey tomorrow.
... boarded the bagpipes played us on. Our carriage hosts are Ewen and Leah, very upbeat, funny and the usual friendly Canadians. Today we travel alongside the Fraser river and through the Canadian desert, before it merges into the Thompson river and we stay the night at the Thompson Hotel in Kamloops before the next leg of the journey through the Rockies towards Jasper where we stay 2 nights yaa. On today's scenic route we passed Hells Gate in the canyon, it's the ...
... of travellers from the UK, who were returning home when they arrived at Vancouver..
Didn't take many photos today because everything was blurred by the speed at which we were travelling. It was hard to see things because the trees were very close to the rail line and were impenetrable most of the time.
Think you see more travelling by road.
